Lazaro Arbos Wants to Visit Glee's William McKinley High School Next

The end of the line is just the beginning of the story.

With Sir Anthony Hopkins in the audience, American Idol’s six remaining contestants took the stage to perform two songs – one from the catalogue of legendary songwriters Burt Bacharach and Hal David and another one “they wish they had written.”

It only takes one bad performance to end someone’s dream on American Idol.

Back in season 5, Kellie Pickler “butchered” (her word, not ours) “Unchained Melody,” and was unceremoniously sent home. In a previous season, frontrunner Constantine Maroulis left the competition after an unpleasant version of Nickelback’s “How You Remind Me.”

It was a moment every American Idol contestant dreads – live, in front of millions, a song goes off the rails.

The nightmare came true for Burnell Taylor, Devin Velez and Lazaro Arbos during Motown Night on Wednesday, as the three finalists botched a group performance of “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie Honey Bunch),” the 1965 hit by the Four Tops.
